UX/UI Design Lead,
Pearson Education

I’m Rachael! I’m a multi-disciplined designer with a specialist focus on UX/UI Design. My career has taken me all over the world from Australia to London to Canada, and across a variety of different industries from Publishing, Architecture, Tourism Product Design right through to technology in the Banking industry.

I'm currently designing products in the education sector at Pearson Education and am loving the ability to combine my 15 years of Graphic Design experience with UX and UI processes in an innovative space. I love a clean minimalistic aesthetic and believe humility and open-mindedness go a long way in the UX Process (and in life).
